There comes a time in every woman’s life where she must come to grips with the retail gimmicks associated with different holidays.
For me, today was the day.
First, I blogged about the predicament as any good business journalist would. Then, I headed to Giant Food Stores with 384 points on my Giant BonusCard.
I bought pantyhose (I rip mine on a daily basis.) and two boxes Orville Redenbacher popcorn, which, at about $3 a box had a point-doubling tag.
The popcorns also include two Redbox movie codes, so you’re basically getting the popcorn for el-cheapo, in my humble opinion.
Then, I dug through every single one of the turkeys in the freezer bin until I found him.
At 20.25 pounds, I’m not sure what I’m going to do with him, aside from cook him eventually.
At first, I put him in the freezer and opted to relax after a busy week. Yesterday, I was at the office late deciphering legal jargon to write this.
Then, I got a little loopy preparing for the holiday weekend and started wondering what it would be like to pose my free turkey– my pride and joy — next to random objects in my house.
First, there was journalist turkey. Then, turkey in an armchair:
Then, turkey in the sack:
Then, things got out of hand. I give you turkey on the toilet:
Turkey in the shower:
Needless to say, I think I’m losing it. I’m so ready for these next four days.
Happy Thanksgiving, you guys!
